The Why of the Positive Impact Movement
I had been trying to give birth to an idea that could have a positive impact on people and our society and environment. I felt the need to create an universal movement to generate this positive change, but did not know where and how to start.
I re-did my life some years ago in a new country and city. I understood that:
1-Change starts with ourselves;
2-Life might be simpler than what it is: we might have complicated it;
3-We should listen and trust our own voice, which is our inner wisdom and place to be. No one will guide us better than ourselves.
I always believed in the strength and positive energy that we have, human-beings. I believe in the ability of growth that is in us. I believe in life and what we are and what unites us. I believe in giving, sharing to grow together in an even stronger way.
I kept searching for my project based on my truth and on my spiritual evolution. I've been travelling on my path, from my inner world to the outer world, defining my social enterprise (YouTooday) in different ways to fit who I am and what I love to create. I finally found the Positive Impact Movement - PiMov.
PiMov is about People and their path of awakening and empowerment, it is about them finding themselves and their purpose to positively impact in their society and environment with who they are and what they love to create. It is about reinforcing their positive impact by connecting them to like-minded others to get inspired and empowered, to collaborate and to find the emotional, structural and funding support they need.
PiMov would have not existed if I wouldn't have experienced all I've lived up until now: I needed empowerment, mentoring and inspiration of people who would believe in the person behind the project/startup I was creating.
I came to understand the need to create a network that connects, empowers, supports and inspires those who are aligned to who they are and who are positively impacting through their creations. I did not find this network anywhere, so I decided to create it myself coming together with others like me:
We, socially-conscious change makers, have become consciously aware of the need that there is around us. We develop our ideas and projects aligned to our values, beliefs and evolution. Regretfully, many times we do not get the support we require because our projects are not sustainable yet. Coming together empowers us and it promotes collaboration: the majority is going through the similar pain-points and our unique projects can be of service for someone else within the community.
I believe that our projects evolve as we do; what we do is the outcome of who we are: If we are free to be who we are and create what we love - I call this our Power of Being - we become a powerful source of Positive Impact Making!
